Upper Back Pain

I have degenerative disc disease so, every now and then my back slips out of alignment and causes me great discomfort. That is the case today. It happened while I was in the shower. I went to the gym anyway and did my shoulder workout. It didn’t make my back feel any worse. And what it feels like is a knife in my upper back (at least what I imagine knife in the back would feel like).

I think I had a good shoulder workout though. I did a total of 5 exercises; dumbbell military press, dumbbell lying rear lateral raises, incline dumbbell flies, dumbbell raises, and dumbbell shoulder shrugs. My shoulders seem to be getting stronger, and even the joints feel better. I really hate shoulder and arm workouts. I don’t know why they seem so hard to me.

I hope the back pain doesn’t last too much longer.  It has only been one day and I’m tired of it. I don’t think it will interfere  with any of my workouts this week. At least I hope not.
